The Extraordinary summit meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) opened with a speech by King Abdullah. Ahmadinejad greeted the Saudi king by kissing his cheeks and expressed hope that the OIC summit would reinforce unity among Muslim countries. The participants are expected to discuss the ongoing crisis in Syria. Iran strongly objects to a recommendation this week by OIC foreign ministers to freeze Syria’s membership in the organization. The Arab League suspended Syria’s membership in November to protest its use of force against demonstrators.
